Jefferson Announces Partnership to Expand Fertility Services in Center City



Jefferson partners with Reproductive Medicine Associates (RMA) of Philadelphia to offer fertility services at its new Center City OB-GYN facility

"RMA of Philadelphia and Jefferson's clinical partnership provides a unique combination of resources to serve our patients," says Jacqueline Gutmann, MD, of RMA of Philadelphia. "The patient focused, world-class care of one of the leading private infertility practices in the region coupled with a team of nationally recognized academic Ob-Gyn Physicians will now be available to those seeking fertility care in Center City."

The RMA at Jefferson team firmly believes that fertility treatment isn't just for patients who have been trying to conceive without success, but also for same sex couples or for those who are single but wish to have a child. Fertility preservation services are also provided on an urgent basis to newly diagnosed cancer patients who want to have the best chance to build a family after their treatment is completed, as well as for women who wish to expand their family building options and electively preserve their eggs.

Our practice offers patients a number of options including in vitro fertilization (IVF), cryopreservation of eggs and sperm, and third party reproductive options such as egg or sperm donation and gestational carriers. RMA at Jefferson's success rates are consistently above the national average for both live births and clinical pregnancies.

Because cost is often a consideration for patients undergoing fertility treatment, RMA at Jefferson offers in-house financial counselors who meet face-to-face with patients to help clarify and guide them through the often complex maze of insurance and payment options. In addition, RMA at Jefferson provides a refund guarantee program to qualified patients, providing a refund for those who do not deliver a baby after six cycles of IVF.

Jefferson's Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology is known in the region for expertise in general, high risk, and specialty treatments. Not only do their clinicians provide excellent fertility care to patients, they are also known for their research contributions dedicated to improving outcomes within the field of reproductive endocrinology and infertility.
